Works for Queensland continues in Gayndah…
Following North Burnett Regional Council’s successful application for funding through the State Government’s ‘Works for Queensland’ (W4Q) program for regional councils to help stimulate growth and improve minor infrastructure across regional Queensland, Council received funding for the “Claude Wharton and Jaycee Park Upgrade” project to repair and upgrade recreational facilities at these popular Gayndah locations.
Proposed upgrades to Jaycee Park include the replacement of damaged picnic tables and upgrade of the existing picnic area and amenities block.
Upgrades to the Claude Wharton Weir recreational area include clearing of overgrown vegetation, preparation of a grassed day area and building of beach front by placement of a retaining wall adjacent to the boat ramp. The boat ramp site will be cleared to improve access for boat owners.
Work on the Claude Wharton Weir boat ramp commenced this week and will continue for approximately three weeks duration, weather permitting. During this time, the boat ramp will be closed to the public between the hours of 6am to 6pm, Monday to Friday. To minimise disruption, the ramp will be re-opened to the public for use on weekends.
Council appreciates that these works may result in disruption to the public, however, where possible, the disruption will be minimised. We trust that community members will find the completed project has improved safety and accessibility and be aesthetically pleasing.
For further information regarding this project please contact Council’s Engineering and Environmental Services staff on 1300 696 272 (1300 MY NBRC) or email Council.
The ‘Claude Wharton and Jaycee Park Upgrade’ project has been funded by the Queensland Government’s Works for Queensland project.
